Sherry Chandler’s poetry collected here unwinds with a quaint but smoldering nostalgia. The messages she threads through verdant metaphor and various observational poems come with a power that grabs the attention more elegantly than any poetry I’ve encountered lately.

I had, counting those people who “liked” my Giveaway post before I was smart enough to get Disqus set up, 11 entries.
I assigned each entry a number according to the order in which entries were made, first entry #1 and last entry #11.
To determine the winner of my new book, The Woodcarver’s Wife, I again asked the generator to pick a number between one and 11. This time the number given was 11, Rodney Wilder.
Congratulations winners! I’ll be contacting you by e-mail for contact info.
And thanks to everybody who play along. I hope you’ll visit my tumblr often.

This collection feeds that hunger for the unsweet, for the homely, substantial nutrients of the soul presented in an exquisitely crafted book of equally exquisite poems.
T. Crunk is a fabulist, a Minor Prophet from the last pages of the Old Testament. James Dickey has called him a “true voyant” (a clairvoyant, a seer). The periods of the King James Bible echo through his work, and his voice in Biblia Pauperum is a cross between Tom of Bedlam and John the Revelator. Or perhaps between the preacher of Ecclesiastes and the mad slave-rebellion leader Nat Turner.
For the fifth year, Kelli Russell Agodon is organizing The Big Poetry Giveaway for National Poetry Month. I plan to participate by giving away to two people, two poetry books, one of my own and one of my favorites by another poet,
So I am offering my own newly released The…
